UNODC, as guardian of the United Nations Convention against Transnational

Organized Crime (UNTOC) and the Protocols thereto, assists States in their

Mexico has launched its own national version of the United Nations “Blue

Heart” campaign against human trafficking – Read More.

The United Nations has launched the UN Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of

Trafficking in Persons. The Fund was established following the adoption by

the General Assembly in July 2010 of the United Nations Global Plan of

Action to Combat Trafficking in Persons, which urges Governments to take

coordinated, comprehensive and consistent steps to combat such trafficking

and to adopt a human rights-based approach.

The fund will help Governments, as well as intergovernmental and nongovernmental

organizations, to protect and support victims of human

trafficking so that they can recover from their physical and psychological

scars. UNODC has been designated to administer the Fund, with the advice of

a Board of Trustees appointed by the United Nations Secretary-General.

The Blue Heart Campaign actively supports the call for contributions to the

UN Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Human Trafficking. If you are

moved by the human tragedy of trafficking in persons, we urge you to

consider donating generously to the UN Trust Fund.

This Campaign is good but thats not why I liked it. It was the simple Logo that they have and the Language Barrier that they have broken through. In most of the other campaigns iv researched it goes with out saying that they have broken the language barrier but most of what they advertise is in english. This I like because they have changed their logo with it. This has given me an idea on how I can link my posters together so they all work with each other as a group, but can still stand alone in their own.
